New location picked for July 3rd fireworks in Peru

Posted by wlpo on February 22, 2016

The new site to shoot off fireworks in Peru is definitely on the high ground away from flooding.

Calling it the “best case scenario”, Peru Parks and Rec. member Ray Zborowski says Peru’s July 3rd fireworks will be shot off behind the Peru Mall, about 500 feet west of North Peoria Street. The main viewing area and place to park will be the west side mall parking lot.

North Peoria Street will be closed before and during the fireworks from 36th to 38th Street for things like a beer garden and live music. Kids’ activities will be set up near the mall with no alcohol allowed on mall property.

Organizers stressed it’ll be more family friendly then the old set up along Water Street.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
